Hello, I am applying a social network analysis to data assessing  
interactions among organizations involved in climate change adaptation  
activities in a specific region.

I have run into a problem. Most organizations are represented by one  
respondent. In some cases, however, there are two or three respondents  
surveyed who represent the same organization. The responses they have  
provided differ in terms of the number of ties, and also in the  
frequency and type of interactions. Is there a generally-accepted  
method for dealing with this? And/or, would you be so kind as to  
suggest some literature that discusses this issue?

Thanks very much.
